WOMEN'S DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Why are Diamond Engagement Rings Important?
The engagement ring has a long tradition that goes back to the Ancient Egyptians, who believed that the "vein of love" at the top of the ring finger connects directly to the heart. As the hardest substance known to man, the Ancient Greeks called diamonds "Adamas," which means unconquerable. The diamond has since been identified as a symbol of everlasting love and marriage. Archduke Maximilian of Austria commissioned the first recorded engagement ring with a diamond in 1477 for his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy. Today, the diamond ring is the ultimate symbol to mark an engagement as official and the brilliance of a piece radiates the love and commitment of the engaged couple.
Can Engagement Rings Have Colored Stones?
Engagement rings are not just limited to diamonds and can have colored stones. The announcement of the engagement of the current Prince of Wales, William, and his betrothed, Kate, came with an exceptional engagement ring that once belonged to Diana, the late Princess of Wales, which had a sapphire stone. The stone choices of engagement rings can depend on the preference of the wearer and her style. The most popular choices of stones apart from diamond are sapphire, emerald, amethyst, and topaz. These colored stones usually come with a pair of diamonds or are surrounded by brilliant-cut diamonds. Diamonds are also available in different colors. We typically have a selection of yellow diamonds for our engagement rings.

Can Engagement Rings Be Silver?
The primary advantage of using silver the choice of metal for your engagement ring is its affordability. Engagement rings can be made of silver. However, we recommend you select sterling silver over fine silver because it does not tarnish as easily. However, sterling silver engagement rings require more maintenance than white or yellow gold engagement rings. Some couples may choose sterling silver for their engagement rings for its affordability and make plans to upgrade the metal to gold later on.
Should I Wear My Engagement Ring on My Wedding Day?
Yes, you may wear your engagement ring on your wedding day. However, to prevent your wedding ring from upstaging your wedding band, which is usually of a simpler design, you may wear your engagement ring on your right hand. By placing your engagement ring on your right hand, the wedding ring can then be placed on the left hand's ring finger during the wedding ceremony at its traditional position "closest to the heart."
